Have you ever wondered why so many women are attracted to men who are unavailable, sneaky and evasive?  You know the deal – your best friend is completely infatuated with a guy who is never around and rarely calls.  Every now and then, he shows up in the middle of the night without warning and she thinks it is cute.  To make matters worse, the guy doesn’t have a steady job, he’s overweight and he’s obscenely hairy. 

The reason why so many of us fall for this type of man has been a mystery for years.  But if you think about it while listening to Christmas music, you might have the same epiphany I had.  Psychologists often say that we seek out men in adulthood who resemble those men we idolized as little girls, right?  I’m not sure how we could have missed this connection all these years….
